Vassal on desktop?

Hi

I just loaded Vassal 3.1.10 and I was never prompted to make a desktop icon for easier startup. How do I create a desktop icon that doesn’t install the game each time?

Thanks

John

Thus spake “jhammond”:

What OS are you using?

Windows XP

Thus spake “jhammond”:

Did you install VASSAL using the Windows installer?

I think so but I’m not sure what that is? I installed it by clicking on the Windows hot word on the Vassal engine site. Then I selected ‘Save’ from the pop up window.

Thus spake “jhammond”:

Which link? Show me.

But did you then run the application that you “saved”, i.e. did you select that file and double click it or tell it to “open”? “Saving” it only saves the installation program not the VASSAL application.

OK, I got it. I just had to go into custom install. For whatever reason the standard install didn’t create the desktop icon.

Thanks
